Have a quick question. I have heard that you could send an electrolux hose back to the factory for repair. I believe I heard the hose could come back shorter in a lot of instances. Has anyone else ever heard of this process. See the aatched photo. I saw this hose tonight on Ebay attached to a 1205. I am assuming the metal end was attached to the hose at the factory? Never seen the color ribbon with this type of metal end.

Thoughts? Thanks Richard.

There was a tool that a lot of the dealer repair shops had to recrimp the ends. A couple of members have talked about the tool and promised pics, but so far I've not seem them.

 

Todd in OR who is selling parts/units on eBay from a defunct dealer he found, has a huge box of hose ends....so obviously that dealer was making up hoses at some point.

 

There is also a member here that took the time to post all the yrs of Electrolux and the color hoses that went with ea model. Some model runs had more than one color/piping combination....like the 1205. Electrolux was famous for using NOS from a previous model onto new models upon their introduction.

Thanks Kevin.....

Would love to see the tool you are refering to. Hopefully one of the many experts we have will post.

The hose that is pictured is a genuine hose made by Lawrence industries, they were the company that produced all the parts for Electrolux, at one time before the Aerus change over, Lawrence manufactured original parts in different colors to be sold through vacuum stores. I have a brand new 1205 hose in a beige and white herringbone pattern. The hoses that the factory or some local branches would repair was standard hoses, the electric hoses could not be repaired, they had to be replaced. The tool was kind of interesting, you inserted a new steel ferrel in the hose end and put the end back on, put the tool in the open end and try it and it would swell up the metal ferrule so you could not pull the hose out of the end.

I would love to see that tool actually working or a pic of the thing......

 

I have a 1205 hose I bought on eBay that was supposed to have good  suction on the end...it doesn't. But it's interesting because on the nozzle end it has two colors of plastic; the teal and white. It looks to be manufactured and not a Frankenhose.
